A New Genetic Algorithm for Designing Cellular Manufacturing Systems with Labor and Tools Issues

Abstract:

Article Preview

This paper considers the problem of designing cellular manufacturing systems (CMS) with the presence of alternate process plans, tools and workers. The objective is to minimize the total costs of machine installation, operations, tools and workers with a number of identified practical constraints. A genetic algorithm is designed in order to efficiently solve medium and large sized problems. Preliminary numerical results show the worth of implementing the suggested procedure.
